We are committed to raising £9,500 each year to maintain the library opening hours we have enjoyed for many years and including the Saturday opening that Focal has always funded.

#FF0000 Raised £9,276 towards the £9,500 target.

We have a threefold strategy to achieve this funding target:

  •    to raise £3,500 pa from our events programme
  •    to raise £3,000 pa from subscriptions from our patrons and friends
  •    to raise £3,000 pa from donations and grants.

For the financial year to 31 March 2018, we have so far raised £9,276 against our target of £9,500.  Our very grateful thanks to all who have helped to achieve this excellent result.

Details of our friends’ subscriptions scheme and of our patrons’ scheme and our life patron’s scheme are on separate pages.  There is also a template for a Codicil to your will to make a donation to Focal.  Please see the links, print off the relevant page and post or e-mail it to Anne Dawson, our Treasurer on:(
